    She can barely stay awake during an Olympic Opening ceremony! Doubt she'd be capable of murder

    She'd without doubt be let off. She'd probably abdicate but she would never go to prison.

    Lol, this is an interesting question. But I think if she killed someone for example a maid, and it happened in her home. Then it probably wouldn't get out to the public that she killed her. By that I mean it would just be kept private, a secret within the Royal Family or something. Hopefully that makes sense?

    She would be let off :yep:
    I once was curious about this and asked a policeman (it's ok, he wasn't a randomer, I knew him). And his answer was that she would be let off. If the queen wanted to go around murdering people, then she could.

    It would be an interesting court case to say the least.

    That's pretty disgraceful really. Say a reigning monarch were to kill my parents I'd at least want them to be brought to justice or otherwise I'd have to hunt them down myself.

    I'm sure if that happened it would be covered up. But if it wasn't covered up and it became public knowledge the Queen murdered someone, there's no way she'd get away with it. She probably wouldn't be arrested and put on trial like any normal criminal would be, but it would cause a constitutional crisis. How could a modern democratic state have a head of state who openly murdered someone? There's no way it would stand in the international community.

    I know. Although it's highly unlikely the queen would do such a thing!! But that's how it is.
    Say it did actually happen though, and people found out. There would be a massive uproar!
